Balancing Act

I'm still adjusting to working in an office with about ten times the responsibilities and pressure as my old job.

I'm getting home later, and when I get home, I'm wiped. Getting out of my work clothes sometimes feels like a chore.

I've been able to get in 7am SoulCycle classes on both Wednesday and this morning, and I cooked dinner three times this week - but beyond that - things are having to give.

I had to say no to meeting friends this week, because it's just too much. For right now, I'm trying to balance my work, my health, and my family; and I don't see a lot of room for much else.

I'm sure with experience and time, things will even out. Until then I'm giving myself permission - and guilt free permission - to balance what I can and forget what I can't. 

And, I haven't totally forgotten about my Husband.

This week we are celebrating being together for SEVEN years. We are taking Roscoe and doing a day trip up in Santa Barbara....our favorite thing in the world to do. 

I can't wait for a full day with my boys just enjoying our favorite place in California thinking about how much we've been through together in the last seven years. 

Time is a crazy thing.


  1. I'm impressed that you're still making it to 7 am spin and cooking dinner! You go girl!

  2. Way to go for making it to 7am classes, those are tough! Happy 7 years to you both, have a wonderful weekend celebrating!

  3. Hope you have a wonderful weekend, you deserve it!
